The compact size of the 2178-LL closure makes it ideal for aerial strand, pedestal and hand hole splicing. Specifically designed for inline or butt splicing applications, the closure has two 1.0" cable entry ports per end. The multiport grommet feature provides for simple, flexible and future-proof drop or small diameter branch cable additions. The maximum single fusion and mass fusion splice capacity for the 2178-LL closure is 288 and 864, respectively. The 2178-LL closure has a deeper bottom for more slack storage.
